Donald Cerrone wanted a fight in Denver, and he shall have it – against a former teammate.

"Cowboy," who was born in nearby Colorado Springs, next month will fight Melvin Guillard at UFC 150 in a lightweight bout between two recent title contenders. UFC officials on Friday announced the fight booking, which will serve as the co-main event of the card.

UFC 150 takes place Aug. 11 at Denver's Pepsi Center and features a main event lightweight title fight between champion Benson Henderson and former champ Frankie Edgar, a rematch from their UFC 144 main event. Main-card fights air on pay-per-view, while FX and Facebook are expected to carry the prelims.

As of yesterday, he didn't know either. I replied to his Tweet suggesting Guillard.

I'm convinced I at least played some sort of role in booking this fight.

I REFUSE TO BELIEVE OTHERWISE DAMNIT

If Cerrone shows up the way he did against Diaz, I'll go with Guillard. If the other Cerrone shows up, I'll go with Cerrone.

Before Diaz fight - - got kicked in the face by one of his horses
Before Stephens fight - - his intestines moved while grappling

Either one will crush Melvin and his inflated record.

I rarely ever make excuses for fighters however I think Cerrone's downfall in the Diaz fight was, the fact Diaz was in Cerrone's head. Cerrone didn't want to go in there to compete in a MMA match with him, he went in there to beat the sh*t into him and his greg jackson gameplan went out the window as a result. He got roped up in the situation and got beaten on in the first round as a result but his pride was on the line.

Finally however in the third round he realised if he wanted to beat a Diaz brother he couldn't beat up a Diaz brother he could only really get a win, so started using leg kicks etc. As Condit demonstrated the same tactic to beat Nick Diaz.

Greg Jacksons gameplan to beat the Diaz brothers seemed the same between Condit and Cerrone, it's just one was caught up in the fight and the smack talk and the other executed it.

Cerrone has a terrible style to fight someone who can pressure him outside his own range. I think 10/10 times, Diaz give Cerrone the exact same problems from outside his range.

Same could probably be said for Condit. Both guys can throw combos, but they don't wanna get caught in a brawl, which is what the Diaz brothers love.

I picked Cerrone to win, and probably would again. I agree that Nate was inside his head, but he wouldn't let that happen again. EDIT: Nate's game has been advancing in leaps and bounds, so maybe I wouldn't pick Cerrone.

I think Cerrone will go back to his natural style VS Guillard, Muay Thai mixed in with some ground game beats winging right hands all day.
